From the archives - Royal Purple

Hello everyone!! Whats been happening? I am sure the holiday season has kickstarted for all of you and you all are set with your plans :) I have had a busy week with lots of family engagements and as my luck would have it (embarrassed :(:( ) I havnt been that dressy.

So in this sultry weather, for today's post I plan to archive a few of my looks from fall winter. Now before you go eewwww at the thought of all those woollens I promise to keep this one cool..:p

As I was shuffling through some of my photographed outfits, I observed that I wore a lot of purple this season. So I picked up a few for you to see :)

Look 1

Wearing: Tights Ginger, Cardigan Gap, Black T-Shirt thrifted from Dubai, Ballerina's thrifted from New York, Tasselled Bag and ring gift :*

Look 2

Look 2 was a wholesum mix of some florals, bows and ya fur :) The runways for Autumn/Winter 2010-2011 did showcase a lot of florals (read Dolce & Gabbana, Giorgio Armani, Louis Vuitton among others) and fur (read the classic Chanel). Besides a major reinvention came via THE CHRISTOPHER BAILEY (I'm a huge fan!!) who revisited the Burberry archives and modified the classic aviator jackets. What came as a double treat was the pairing of these strong,bold jackets with soft feminine lace, floral and chiffon dresses and gowns.
Though I couldnt be that pro at it, this look was certainly inspired from the prevailing scenario then :)

Wearing: Jeans Levis, Floral blouse quite old to remember :p, Grey Pumps Local store, Bag Vincci
CONFESSION: What I tied as a bow is actually the belt of the cardigan I wear in Look 1 :p:p

Look 3

This look of mine is truly Vintage as the jacket which I wear is over 10 years old. It belonged to my sister and was eventually passed on to me. It is hand embroided and is stiched in fine organza :) The tank which is I wore underneath is in purple, though the light fuses it into a different shade (which i quite like :) )

I wore rich purple kitten heels with this outfit (thrifted from Delhi) and Gold leaf earings from Aldo.

I hope I made the post interesting :) Keep visiting for lots more...
